تنبه روبرت ينغ بيلتون إلى ظاهرة الجنود المستأجرين في الحرب على الإرهاب حين قابل فريقاً من المتعاقدين الأمنيين الذين كانوا يقومون بمهمة سرية على الحدود الباكستانية الأفغانية في خريف عام 2003؛ فعقد بيلتون عزمه على القيام برحلة ملحمية طويلة للولوج في هذا العالم الغامض وكشف أسراره، ليرجع إلينا بفهم مذهل لطريقة استخدام الجنود الخصوصيين. فتعال معنا لتستكشف عالماً ملطخاً بالدماء من الجنود المرتزقة والمقاتلين القبليين من جنوب إفريقية، تموله طغمة غاشمة من أرباب المال. توقف في المنطقة الخضراء في بغداد، والبس درعك الواقية من الرصاص وضع خوذتك على رأسك؛ لكي ترافق فريقاً من المتعاقدين الأمنيين وهم يسيرون بسرعة عالية، وينعطفون بشدة تجنباً للسيارات الملغمة ونيران القناصة وهم في طريقهم لإيصال عملائهم إلى المطار. شارك أصحاب الجيوش الخاصة الأثرياء كأساً من الراح في أحد الفنادق الفخمة، وهم يناقشون أفضل سبل المحافظة على الحياة في مناطق الحرب. امتدت رحلة هذا الكتاب فوق أربع قارات، واستغرقت على مدى ثلاث سنوات، لتأخذنا إلى داخل الحروب القذرة للسي آي إيه؛ وإلى القتل العنيف الذي لقيه المتعاقدون الأمنييون في الفلوجة، إلى الحصار الذي فرض عليهم في النجف والكوت؛ إلى معسكرات تدريب المتعاقدين في جنوب الولايات المتحدة، حيث يتلقى الجنود السابقون من العمليات الخاصة وحتى أفراد الشرطة في المدن الصغيرة تدريباتهم الأساسية في هذا الحقل؛ إلى مؤتمرات ومعارض المتعاقدين حيث يتبادل الحضور قصص مغامراتهم العسكرية وينقاشون مهماتهم القادمة؛ إلى السجون الكئيبة في وسط إفريقية، حيث دفع متعاقدون أمنيّون تحولوا إلى جنود مرتزقة فيها ثمناً باهظاً لقيامهم بمحاولات انقلاب كان مصيرها الإخفاق. لقد شجعت الولايات المتحدة استخدام القطاع الخاص في كل نواحي الحرب على الإرهاب، واضعة المتعاقدين خارج نطاق القانون وقيوده، وبوضوح مذهل لا يتأتى إلا بمعاينة مباشرة، يحلل لنا هذا الكتاب بدقة عالية اللاعبين الأساسيين؛ ولعل أكثر ما يثير القلق في هذا الكتاب هو أنه كشف عن وجود آلاف من المتعاقدين الأمنيين– إضافة إلى مئات غيرهم يدخلون هذا القطاع كل يوم- يحملون رخصة بالقتل، ويعرضون خدماتهم لمن يدفع الثمن الأعلى. العبيكان للنشر

شهد العالم أحداث الربيع العربي عام 2011، حيث كان قد تجدّد أمل المجتمع المدني العربي بتلك الوقائع، ومع انحدار ليبيا وسوريا إلى حرب أهلية وفوضى يبقى نجاح المجتمع المدني في إيجاد مساحة لنفسه موضع تساؤل؛ إذ إن سقوط أنظمة استبدادية راسخة ظاهريًّا لم يُفد المجتمع المدني كثيرًا، إلا أن حركات إسلامية سياسية استفادت من الفراغ لإنشاء قواعد لها وإطلاق عملياتها من أجل تطبيق إيديولوجيتها. وبعد سنوات عدة على أول الاحتجاجات تعود جماعات إسلامية بقوة في بعض دول الشرق الأوسط، وشمالي إفريقيا، (في سوريا، والعراق، وبلدات في ليبيا، وبعض مناطق لبنان)، حيث تعلن جماعات مثل الدولة الإسلامية في العراق والشام، أو أنصار الشريعة أو غيرها من الجماعات تنصيب خلفاء في المناطق التي تستولي عليها، في محاولة لتحقيق الهدف الإسلامي السياسي المتمثّل بإنشاء (خلافة إسلامية عالمية) تضم العالم الإسلامي برمَّته. يطرح هذا الكتاب وجهة نظر مؤلِّفه بشكل خاص، والعالم الغربي بشكل عام، عن الإسلام السياسي، إضافة إلى تقويم للدولة الإسلامية وتحدّيها المفاهيم والواقعية والمنطقية، وركز بين صفحاته على العلاقة بين الإسلام والديموقراطية. العبيكان 2016

Sex and World Peace unsettles a variety of assumptions in political and security discourse, demonstrating that the security of women is a vital factor in the security of the state and its incidence of conflict and war. The authors compare micro-level gender violence and macro-level state peacefulness in global settings, supporting their findings with detailed analyses and color maps. Harnessing an immense amount of data, they call attention to discrepancies between national laws protecting women and the enforcement of those laws, and they note the adverse effects on state security of abnormal sex ratios favoring males, the practice of polygamy, and inequitable realities in family law, among other gendered aggressions. The authors find that the treatment of women informs human interaction at all levels of society. Their research challenges conventional definitions of security and democracy and shows that the treatment of gender, played out on the world stage, informs the true clash of civilizations. In terms of resolving these injustices, the authors examine top-down and bottom-up approaches to healing wounds of violence against women, as well as ways to rectify inequalities in family law and the lack of parity in decision-making councils. Emphasizing the importance of an R2PW, or state responsibility to protect women, they mount a solid campaign against women's systemic insecurity, which effectively unravels the security of all.

In this lively narrative, newcomers to women's and gender studies, feminist politics, history, and sociology explore a refreshing take on a subject matter often loaded with assumptions. Feminist theories are viewed through the critical intersections of race, class, sexuality, age, and ability, and are embedded in the experiences of everyday life, allowing Bromley to engage readers in doing theory, in making sense of concepts like "power" and "privilege," and in effecting social change. Using a variety of pedagogical devices, including provocative images, discussion questions, and classroom activities, Feminisms Matter helps readers cultivate a way of thinking critically about their everyday worlds.

Focusing on critical approaches to security, this new textbook offers readers both an overview of the key theoretical perspectives and a variety of methodological techniques. With a careful explication of core concepts in each chapter and an introduction that traces the development of critical approaches to security, this textbook will encourage all those who engage with it to develop a curiosity about the study and practices of security politics. Challenging the assumptions of conventional theories and approaches, unsettling that which was previously taken for granted - these are among the ways in which such a curiosity works. Through its attention to the fact that, and the ways in which, security matters in global politics, this work will both pioneer new ways of studying security and acknowledge the noteworthy scholarship without which it could not have been thought. This textbook will be essential reading to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of critical security studies, and highly recommended to students of traditional security studies, International Relations and Politics.

The practices of world politics are now scrutinised in a way that is unprecedented, with even those previously – or conventionally assumed to be – disengaged from international affairs being drawn into world politics by social media. Interactive websites allow users to follow election results in real-time from the other side of the world, and online mapping means that the world ‘out there’ is now available on your mobile phone. Understanding Popular Culture and World Politics in the Digital Age engages these themes in contemporary world politics, to better understand how digital communication through new media technologies changes our encounters with the world. Whether the focus is digital media, social networking or user-generated content, these sites of political activity and the artefacts they produce have much to tell us about how we engage world politics in the contemporary age. This volume represents the starting point of a dialogue about how digital technologies are beginning to impact the research and practice of scholars and practitioners in the field of International Relations, with the collection of cutting-edge essays dealing specifically with the intertextuality of world politics and digital popular culture. This book will be of use to International Relations research academics (and critically engaged publics) interested in the core themes of global politics – subjectivity, militarism, humanitarianism, civil society organisation, and governance. The book also employs theories and techniques closely associated with other social science disciplines, including political theory, sociology, cultural studies and media studies.
